You have one of the following problems:

  • A weak battery or corroded connections on the battery terminals;
  • Loose or dirty connection on the starter solenoid terminals;
  • Burned-out starter solenoid contacts;
  • Worn-out starter motor brushes.
Check the possibilities in the order presented; ease of checking and probability of the problem in this case are in the same order.

You either have a weak/bad battery, even if it shows that it is fully charged, you may have a dead cell. More than likely this is due to a bad starter though. It sounds like the Solenoid on the Starter is stuck, causing it to click. The battery being bad could also make it click, and not turn over.

Replace the battery! If the battery is good then your starter might be bad, or the wiring up to the starter.
More then likely it is your battery though.

you have a problem with your starter solenoid. the contacts are worn out and needs to be replaced.

it is at the side of the starter. it is where the big wire from the battery is connected.

All dash lights on won't start just clicking only


the dashlights should go off when it starts , that should be normal .
sounds like your batterie is flat. try to jumpstart it or charge the batterie overnight and try to start it.
if it runs after that and the dashlights dont turn off it could be your altinator. use a multimeter, set it to 20 v and connect it to the batterie while the engine runs, it should get more than 13,5 v. if you dont have a multimeter go to aany carbatterieshop and ask them to test yout altinator. its free usually. also let them check your batterie.

My ford taurus doesnt turn on. Lights, stereo dashboard lights all turn on except the engine it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesnt I dont know what can be wrong with the car??


If the starter is clicking, or the engine is turning over slowly, try replacing the battery or try getting a jump to see if you can get the engine to start.

If the engine is turning over, but won't start, it sounds like you may have a bad timing belt or your timing tensioner or idler has gone out.
